Summary:
'The Invaded' explores the United States' military occupations of Nicaragua (1912-33), Haiti (1915-34), and the Dominican Republic (1916-24), proposing not only that opposition to US intervention was more widespread than commonly acknowledged but that anti-imperial movements in the Caribbean basin were primarily responsible for bringing about the end of US occupation.
